    Legend Studio Actually Updates Their Sailor Moon Line

    Remember when Legend Studio announced a line of Sailor Moon figures? Probably not, because it was a long time ago, and then they completely dropped off the face of the earth. I mean, we didn’t even know if they had the correct license or if this was just a garage kit endeavor!

    But now, we have… prototypes! One of them is even painted. Goodness gracious. Well, actually they had prototypes a year ago but they were terrible and didn’t look like retail quality. These look… almost better than the S.H.Figuarts, dare I say? At least on a detail-based level, her ribbons are perfect! Though Luna is so derpy it hurts.

    More Sailor Moon Figures Are On The Way From Bandai

    Bandai has been making bank with all the Sailor Moon S.H.Figuarts and Figuarts ZERO: they have already done all of the Inner Senshi as poseables, and we know they are doing them all as scales… or at least we do now! That’s right, you are indeed seeing the sculpts for Sailor Mars and Sailor Jupiter in the header image. And I LOVE them. Let’s just pray they aren’t exclusives like Mercury and Venus…

    There are also two more announcements! Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus are getting S.H.Figuarts, which I think solidifies at this point them getting Figuarts Zeros as well (unless, you know, the world ends or Sailor Moon stops being popular–both are equally as likely).

    S.H.Figuarts Sailor Jupiter Completes The Inner Senshi

    Sailor Moon! Sailor Mercury! Sailor Mars! Sailor Venus! Sailor Jupiter!

    Finally, the Inner Senshi are complete. I’ve been waiting so long for this moment! Pretty much my entire life, since my childhood was based on becoming Sailor Mars when I grew up. Spoiler alert: I have yet to fulfill that dream, though I can now own Mars and all her friends. That’s the same thing, right?!

    Sailor Moon Gets Some Trading Figures

    Sailor Moon’s 20th anniversary has marked a flood of long-awaited merchandise, everything from action figures to chibis to actual scales… though unfortunately all from the same group of companies (so far). We have had one set of petit-style trading figures, but fans are pretty desperate for some non-jointed, properly proportioned sailor scouts. And finally, our wish is being granted!
